WILMINGTON, North Carolina - With the regular season opener just 16 days away, the UNCW volleyball team will begin preparations for the 2012 season Wednesday with the start of preseason training.
The Seahawks will open training camp with team meetings in the morning before getting to work on the freshly-resurfaced floor of Hanover Hall in the afternoon.
Fourth-year Head Coach Amy Bambenek welcomes back nine letterwinners and five starters from her 2011 squad that matched the program record for league victories in a season. Bambenek also brings in five newcomers for the upcoming season with four freshman and one sophomore transfer ready to make their UNCW debut in 2012.
The Seahawks took time to bond away from the court prior to the start of preseason training, gathering for a team meal before taking in the sights of historic downtown Wilmington Tuesday.
UNCW opens the 2012 season Aug. 24-25, hosting the UNCW Courtyard Wilmington Beach Bash at Hanover Hall. The Seahawks will entertain Delaware State, Long Island and High Point in the two-day event.
